Long-term use of hormonal contraceptives linked to increased risk of brain tumors

New research published in the British Journal of Clinical Pharmacology says that women who use hormonal birth control methods long-term may be at an increased risk for developing brain tumors. During this project, Danish researchers used data from Denmark’s national administrative and health registries, a large resource that allowed them to identify women in Denmark between 15 and 49 years of age who had been diagnosed with glioma of the brain, a rare tumor. Alarmingly, using hormonal contraceptive for just five years is associated with an increased risk of developing this sort of brain tumor. While symptoms, treatments and outcomes vary based on the type of brain glioma, I think it’s fair to assume we’d all rather not have brain tumors of any kind.
